"Columbia City Theatre Show preview"

Tokyoidaho is my new favorite band name... - The Stranger

"tokyoidaho show preview"

Forlorn fans of former Seattle space-rock VIPs Voyager One can take solace in the rise of Tokyoidaho. Featuring guitarist/vocalist/Moog-manipulator Peter Marchese, bassist Jasun Hadaway, and drummer Elliott Nutt, Tokyoidaho have a new self-titled album on a new label, Neon Sigh. The disc is packed with elegantly crafted rock songs bathed in romantic ache and swathed in stardust... - the stranger

"tokyoidaho debut review"

Tokyoidaho will be celebrating the release of their self-titled debut album on Neon Sigh. and It's a masterly collection of cloud-strafing songs with curvaceous, sigh-inducing melodies swathed in blurred-magenta guitar textures. The groups craftily dramatic dynamics keep things varied and the use of effects is deft and trippy. - the stranger

(since 2011)

Tokyoidaho is the ironically named new Surrealist-Pop group from Peter Marchese ( Vocals, Guitar, Moog, Sequencer ), Jasun Hadaway (Bass Guitar), and Elliott Nutt ( Drums)

First off, what's with the name anyway? What (if anything) does Tokyoidaho mean? Well, I might be able to convince you that it's an oblique reference to Seattle and where it sits geographically and culturally, (somewhere between the neon-future and the old west) but then with you being a perceptive sort, you might be skeptical of that explanation, and then I would be forced to admit that weird mash-ups are the only googleable names left in this crazy mixed-up world!

So you might be saying to yourself, I'm a very busy person. Could we get to the point of this already? What exactly does Tokyoidaho SOUND like anyway? Will I even LIKE it? Well, I could use some descriptive adjectives like, "Crunchy" or "Squishy" or maybe even "Interesting" to describe the bands' sound, but that would surely be too vague and just confuse things even more wouldn't it? I guess in that case I could try the classic music journalist comparison device and say they sound like " Radiohead meets Pink Floyd at a middle school kickball tournament circa 1978" or maybe "Like a cross between vintage Eno and Ringos drumkit falling out of the back of a 12-passenger van ", or if I was feeling particularly inspired then maybe I could say something like "The ghost of Curtis Mayfield in the middle of a heated funk workout with a malfunctioning R2-UNIT", but those descriptions would just make them sound pretty silly and pretentious and that is NOT the effect we are going for here! I reckon the best bet we have then is to just listen to the music and see what you (oh person with impeccable taste you) think of it? Is it your cup of tea? One lump or two?!!
